NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367361 Loser: Cleveland Cavaliers Loser%3A+Cleveland+Cavaliers+ NBA

The Cavs didn’t do a single thing – which won’t exactly help their case in trying to re-sign LeBron James. I understand drafting a rookie wouldn’t be a determining factor with The King, but it couldn’t have hurt to do something.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367219 Winner: Washington Wizards Winner%3A+Washington+Wizards NBA

The John Wall pick was a no-brainer, but it still places the Wizards in the winners column. Then throw in a couple trades that allowed them to get Kirk Hinrich as well as move up and grab Trevor Booker, an athletic freak who plays with a high motor, and Washington did well on Thursday night. The Wizards got a future star, a solid veteran guard and a quality role guy.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367343 Loser: Milwaukee Bucks Loser%3A+Milwaukee+Bucks+ NBA

They took a chance on Larry Sanders at No. 15, then grabbed two more big men, Tiny Gallon and Jerome Jordan, in the second round. I’m a fan of Darington Hobson, who they took at 37 overall, but he, like Sanders and Gallon, comes with baggage.

Rod Thorn stood pat and took talented big man Derrick Favors with the third overall pick and also added Damion James via trade late in the first round. Favors may not be dominant immediately, but he’ll be a terrific running mate for Brook Lopez up front, and James is an energy guy who will be a quality role guy. These were two quality pickups for Thorn and new coach Avery Johnson.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367342 Loser: Larry Bird Loser%3A+Larry+Bird+ NBA

The Indiana Pacers boss needs to head back to French Lick. He rolled the dice on Fresno’s Paul George with the 10th overall pick and then took a shot on Lance Stephenson and Ryan Reid in the second round. George fared well in workouts, but I’m still wary of whether he’ll pan out — and I’m not a Stephenson fan due to all the baggage he brings with him. Sometimes I wonder whether Bird watches college basketball at all.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367217 Winner: Los Angeles Clippers Winner%3A+Los+Angeles+Clippers NBA

I know it sounds crazy, but the Clips did extremely well adding a big-time athletic wing in Al-Farouq Aminu (pictured) with the eighth overall pick and then dealing a future first-rounder to acquire Eric Bledsoe from Oklahoma City. Not enough has been said about Aminu, who could be a star down the road, and Bledsoe should be a top-half-of-the-league point guard down the road. The Clippers also took a shot late in the second round on Willie Warren, whose stock plummeted largely due to his attitude.

The Grizz already have O.J. Mayo, and they took another two-guard in Xavier Henry (pictured) with the 12th overall pick. Then they grabbed another two-guard in Dominique Jones and dealt him for cash before grabbing Greivis Vasquez — who is, you guessed it, a two-guard – with the 28th overall pick.

They made as much noise as just about any team — and the Draft hadn’t even begun. Owner Paul Allen canned GM Kevin Pritchard an hour before it started, and it may have helped as the Blazers dealt away enigmatic wing Martell Webster for Luke Babbitt (pictured) and Ryan Gomes and also grabbed athletic wing Elliot Williams with the 22nd pick.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367323 Loser: Boston Celtics Loser%3A+Boston+Celtics NBA

Danny Ainge has a terrific track record with drafting, so it’s difficult to question the Celtics boss. However, now he’s added another small guard who can’t shoot the ball. However, unlike Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley can’t run a team, either. He’s a terrific defender, which should get him on the floor, but it’ll be difficult to pair the 6-foot-1 Bradley with the 6-2 Rondo.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367189 Winner: Chicago Bulls Winner%3A+Chicago+Bulls NBA

Terrific move by General Manager Gar Forman to get rid of Kirk Hinrich’s near-$10 million per season salary along with the No. 17 pick to Washington. This allows the Bulls to be major players in the free-agent market and potentially even add a pair of max-salary guys.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367341 Loser: Paul Westphal Loser%3A+Paul+Westphal+ NBA

The soon-to-be 60-year-old Sacramento coach needs a shrink after the Kings drafted DeMarcus Cousins. Then they rolled the dice on another big-time talent, Hassan Whiteside, who has question marks as well. There’s no denying Cousins’ talent, but the concerns are character and work ethic. The bottom line is that while this one could go either way, it may send Westphal into early retirement.

NBA 73 180 NBA draft winners and losers 11367321 Winner: John Calipari Winner%3A+John+Calipari NBA

I’m not sure anyone got more face time and more pub than the Kentucky head coach. The Wildcats had five players taken in the first round: John Wall (1), DeMarcus Cousins (5), Patrick Patterson (14), Eric Bledsoe (18) and Daniel Orton (27). While those in Lexington are smiling, they also have to be a little upset that they had a handful of first-round picks and didn’t even get to the Final Four.

Now that the NBA draft is in the books, it’s time to take a look at who should be smiling and who should be worried. From Madison Square Garden, Jeff Goodman names the winners and losers.
